Reaching out to a world that has said "Goodbye" to God
MORE DETAILS COMING SOON: the information below is about last year's conference
The gospel is to be owned and shared by everyone who is a follower of Christ. But we too often make Gospelling the sole preserve of the “professionals”. How can we encourage, train and equip the vast army of gospel-sharers we have in our congregations?
We are delighted to welcome Richard Cunningham from UCCF to share with us some principles and practical ideas on how to mobilize all kinds of believers to share Christ one to one.
Richard has a wealth of experience in evangelism training, and has been part of the hugely effective Uncover campaign—which has got students all over the country opening Luke’s Gospel one to one with others.
With a variety of practical seminars, this day conference is a timely and strategic event that will stimulate us to grow the work of evangelism in our local churches.
This is a conference not just for those who would call themselves “evangelists,” but for anyone who has a role in promoting evangelism in the local church. Come with a team from your church to enjoy the stimulation, encouragement and
refreshment that this conference will bring.
